While not quite as popular as its six-inch brethren, 5-inch recessed lights are well suited for general lighting and, due to their smaller size, their versatility serves both commercial and residential applications. A fashionable way to illuminate one's home or office space, 5-inch canister lighting can be used for either interior or exterior use. Lighting designers favor recessed lighting because the trim and housing does not occupy a room's space yet complements the decor of any home's architectural style. Recessed lighting consists of trim and housing. Lighting trim is visible to the observer and attaches to the bottom of the housing along the edge of the ceiling. Trim may also utilize either diffuse (reflective) or specular qualities to enhance downlight beam efficacy. Recessed housing is hidden from view above the ceiling and includes hardware to receive the electrical current used for illumination.
